âSources believeâ

| I always wonder about unnamed sources. It is 
| very easy for Wintel or Wintelâs partners to 
| put out false news. Alarm bells go off in my 
| head when the sources suggest the good old 
| days will return soon. You cannot put the 
| genie of the netbook back in the bottle. 
| Acer has the inside track distributing such 
| gadgets to ISPs, banks, etc. The developing 
| markets can absorb billions of these things 
| running ARM and GNU/Linux, just not x86 and 
| that other OSâ
| In physics, this is described as a 
| âpopulation inversionâ. A higher energy 
| level of atoms tends to drop to a lower 
| energy level as conditions permit. That is 
| the principle used by many lasers. One atom 
| decaying triggers the others.


ARM takes on the server big boys

| DESIGNER OF CHIPS ARM claims that servers 
| using its multi-core chips will go up 
| against Intel within the next 12 months.
| Talking to EE Times, Warren East, ARM 
| Holdings' CEO, said that while its chips 
| have traditionally been used in "relatively 
| low performance" roles the firm's 
| architecture can "support server application 
| as it is". East said that the company is 
| cranking out multi-core chip designs running 
| at "up to 2GHz".



Quad-Core ARM Aquila CPU Coming to Netbooks

,----[ Quote ]
| Now that Windows is no longer the only
| operating system featured in netbooks, with
| Android and Linux steadily gaining ground,
| the time may have finally come for the ARM
| architecture to seriously consider making a
| foray into this market segment. ARM has been
| meaning to do so for quite a while now, but
| there has been little word on what effort, if
| any, is being put into this endeavor. The
| time of silence may have finally come to a
| close, however, now that a certain roadmap
| document from Samsung has been exposed.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
